In Loving Memory
1998 - 2008
Alway's my good girl,
Too well loved to ever be forgotten.....
You were a noble companion, a guardian and a friend loyal and true.  Taken out of the hands of those who harmed you and into my loving arms.  Though you are gone now, I will hold you forever....Sleep softly sweet girl....


Ever vigilant....  Guardian of observatory, home and heart....
(Bottom) A testament to her determination
Although very weak & unable to walk well, her inner strength still reigned supreme...
Taken the day before her passing.


Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn's rain.

When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush of birds in flight.
I am the stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there, I did not die...


Relaxing with a bone after a hard day.....


Seems as though it were only yesterday....
Sophie (formerly named Shadow) before I adopted her in November 2001.


I'm soooo pretty.....


The Dynamic Duo.......
Always ready for action

Sophie fell ill suddenly on November 4, 2008. For three long days she fought a great battle she could not win. She crossed over the Rainbow Bridge as she lay in my arms on November 7, 2008. Her death was caused by a callous, malicious and intentional act of poisoning.

Music:  "Long Way To Go"
Composed & Performed by: Miguel Johnson
